About the inspiration behind the band’s new song, “Stop Motion,” lead vocalist, Grayson Proctor, says, “‘Stop Motion’ to be honest, is really just a dialogue I had with myself one night. After losing something, I was trying to find ‘the comfort’ in the situation…struggling to.” He continues, “I needed to see the bigger picture, but could only see things on a smaller scale.”
Vinyl Thief released their debut EP, “Rebel Hill” in 2012, and took their live show on the road shortly after, opening for the likes of The Joy Formidable, Little Green Cars, Youngblood Hawke, and Wild Cub, performing sets at festivals including CMJ and SXSW. The band played the Beautiful Buzz SXSW 2013 Showcase, earning a reputation for putting on a very well orchestrated live show.
The band is – Grayson Proctor (vocals, synth), Logan Purdom (guitar), Sam English (keys), & Andrew Broadway (drums).
